The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) contains two focuses. The focus on Electrical Engineering teaches students in the fields of control systems, electromagnetics and non-destructive evaluation, microelectronics, electric power & energy systems, and the like. The Computer Engineering focus teaches in the fields of software systems, embedded systems, networking, information security, computer architecture, etc.

History
The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in 1909 from the division of the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering. In 1985 its name changed to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. In 1995 it became the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Abstract

Robust quadrotor control with accurate depth estimation and obstacle avoidance is paramount for agile flight in a dynamic environment. This paper presents initial work to establish software and hardware architecture in developing a completely autonomous high-speed racing quadrotor with onboard processing on a 250-size frame capable of indoor flight in a GPS denied environment. The objective of this paper is

1) Develop software and hardware architecture needed for onboard sensing and computation.

2) Implement robust algorithms for localization, mapping, learning, and decision making.
